Selection of the most satisfactory management scheme is carried out using two types of multicriterion decision making techniques: the outranking types of Electre I and II, and the distance-based type of compromise programming (CP). The process is illustrated using the U.S. Forest Service Beaver Creek Experimental Watershed in the Salt-Verde River Basin of Arizona. The desired objectives of the experimental study and the alternative forest watershed resources management schemes are transformed into an evaluation matrix of alternatives versus criteria array. Additional study results are discussed.
